    Good Afternoon fm the UK...


      I am researching the story of US Forces in Cornwall prior to D-Day 1944. I am - in particular - looking for good Signal Corps photos or pics from Navy Sources. Try as I might, I can not find any digital listings of photos held by the National Archives or the equivalent on-line...can anyone point me in the right direction ?


      Ref US navy pics, I am really after anything that covers the ports/harbours of Falmouth, St. Mawes, Fowey and Plymouth. There must have been 100s if not 1,000s of pics taken at the time so where are they all now ?


      Many thanks in anticipation

            Photographs of various U.S. Army, Navy, and Marine Corps activities dating from 1940 to 1981 are in the custody of NARA's Still Picture Branch (RDSS), Room 5360, The National Archives at College Park, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD  20740-6001. At this time, there is no comprehensive listing of their holdings on our website or catalog. We suggest you contact them directly regarding what types of photographs you are seeking. They will assign your request to a staff member who will search their holdings and let you know what is available. As Thomas noted, the email address is stillpix@nara.gov.
